This whole "identity" thing - as well as the "DNA family history" crap - is just overblown.

I.

Am ME.

Period.

I don't judge you because of where you did or didn't come from, and I expect you to do the same for me.

I evaluate people on who they ARE, and what they DO. Period. I could care less about color or history or race or gender. If you're a legal citizen, you do what you're supposed to do in order to support yourself and your community, and you don't hurt others or piss people off...you're good in my book.

Anything else...is the frame around the picture.

I focus on the picture.

From the article above:
He added this succinct summary of democracy’s origins: “It arose in a limited region, among the peoples of western and northwestern Europe, and was transplanted by them to their colonies overseas.

That statement false in it's entirety.
Democracy had its origin in ancient Greece, not western or northwest Europe.
It was not transplanted. The American colonies went to war to free themselves from a monarchy. Then, and this is important, they founded a
Representative Republic not a Democracy.

Yep, that mis-step constantly pisses me off. Just like my other, usual, pet-peeves...

1. It's not a democracy, it's a REPUBLIC. (the difference being, of course, rule of numbers versus rule of LAW).

2. It's not the "democratic party", it's the DEMOCRAT party.

3. It's not a hot water heater.

4. It's not a VIN number.

The article quotes Lewis, who's statement you properly disagree with, then quotes the Freedom House report on dying freedom, which the article partly agrees with, and partly rips for PC.

Just clarifying what you object to. ( a quote in an article, not the article itself )

Democracy didn't survive long in Greece, after smooth talkers whipped up a frenzy and kicked off the Peloponnesian wars. Shortly after that multi way disaster, it was back to Kings & conquest. Arguably until ???? WW1?

Greece is the perfect example why Democracy is a failure. Just as the Pilgrims are the perfect example why socialism/communism is a failure.... Many decades before Marx, then Lenin, then Stalin proved it to be the worst form of terror the world has ever seen. ( I did skip some guilty parties )


Republics were born in North western Europe, specifically by the Norse. The oldest continuous example is not America, but Iceland.

Feel free to correct me.

I think it's worth embedding the video posted by Ebutch above. Watching it provided a wealth of video that I had not seen before. That Native American Vet is a lying sack of crap. Proven by the video. Little of what he said in his interview stands up to basic scrutiny. He sat there and told the media exactly what they wanted to hear, with complete disregard for the truth. Very disgusting!

I have come to the conclusion that the only solution is for Congress to eliminate all Federal Pot laws, all of them, including hemp taxes for paper products. It will save Billion$.

Then it's up to the States to experiment with taxes and restrictions, and spend the money for law enforcement and control.

I have bets with myself how that's going to work out, and the one I will share is that there will be more traffic between states than today, to evade rich politician's greed.

It's worth remembering that no socialist government has ever achieved the enlightenment to allow the dictatorship to peacefully dissolve itself, as Marx intended.

There is, however, a long tradition of shooting their own and erasing them from history.

I think we've become enlightened enough in the last century to dissolve the dictatorship before it solidifies power.

Careful with boating, out there.

If you've had a friend die of opioid addiction recently, remember Obama interfered in the investigation of Hisbollah cells smuggling cocaine & fentanyl across the Mexican border, supplied by Xi, the Forever Leader of China, ( who Obama admured, and envied his power to silence his enemies ) in the ongoing narcoterrorism war against the U.S.

The money goes to murdering Jews and Christians around the world, as Hisbollah is a tool of the Iranian Mullahs.

Thanks Obama.

Bipartisan stuff.

I had "an incident" at work once where a person in an unmarked pickup truck , not wearing a uniform, yelled something unintelligible, but certainly angry, at me. I ignored him. Less than an hour later, at the office, they questioned me about this "interaction", as they had received a complaint. My reply was this was my stop immediately after my stop at the Mentally ill care center. That when crazy people yell at me I don't argue, engage, or question. I smile, nod politely, and move on. Any other response is risky. And that when a stranger with no obvious police, security, or authority identification yelled at me, I smiled, nodded politely, and moved on.

Long pause. "That guy was a real A#$hole on the phone, wasn't he? Never mind. Go back to work."

That strategy doesn't work when they think you are their subject. Congress is full of dangerous sociopaths. It's obvious.

The fun I had at work after someone called his boss to report an imagined wrong. The boss did not answer and the phone went to voice mail. Meanwhile Mr. Someone did not get his phone hung up and proceeded to posture in front of his buddies and his phone connected to a voice mail owned by a major corporation with strict reporting rules on threats to their employees. I got called into the offices after work and questioned on if I thought Mr. Someone was a threat. They lead me to believe he had threatened one of my bosses. I told them he was a simpleton that would go home drink too much and staple his buddies and himself with an air nailer. That was about as much threat as he would ever be. Then they asked me if I felt safe. I told them I was proactive and always armed. So, I don't worry so much. Then they let me know I was the one threatened. I told them I don't feel threatened.

A month or two later I went to Mr. Someone's ex upper management and asked them to let the simpleton have a job so he didn't starve or freeze in the middle of winter. I never let him know I asked for his job back.

Excuse me while I go get some salsa and corn chips to go with my pierogies. That's lunch today, breakfast is waffles & maple syrup aged in bourbon barrels. Dinner might be shawarma, or strip steaks, if I remember to thaw them.

I am all about cultural appropriation. Especially food & technology. Automatic rice cooker, toaster waffles, instant Quaker oats, microwave pasta cooker. OK, that last one isn't that good. ; )

As to paying him off to go away, that's a horrible business decision. Never pay the Danegeld. But I don't contribute to the NFL, so I'm not paying him.

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/02/e xposing_socialism.html

There are none so dangerous to evil than those who saw the light and became disenchanted by the lies.

Sous vide seems like a nifty idea for restaurants, but I haven't talked myself into spending money on it. Too many unused kitchen toys, now.

Like the microwave pasta cooker. Maybe I just suck at following directions, or maybe it's just a poor idea. I got both a rice & pasta plastic toy for consecutive Christmases. Either can be replaced by a glass bowl. Neither make better food than a pot on the stove. But that could be me.

The garage sale electric kettle, otoh, rocks. Coffee, bachelor chow cup-a-noodles, instant oatmeal, it gets used.

The rice cooker is, after the toaster,& now the kettle, the third most used kitchen appliance. ( was #2 until the kettle this fall )

Purists will insist that a pot is all you need, ( need, true ) but everyone has their own secret for using the stove, So no matter what I do I'm wrong. : ) I find that freeing up the stove, and more importantly, freeing the rice from need for my attention, makes it a useful, and better, choice, for me.

The fact that both restaurants, here, and homes in Japan, Korea, and probably other countries as personal wealth increases, use rice cookers as labor saving devices shows it's a choice, not an abomination.

I have a whole cabinet, over the fridge, and buried behind cereal boxes, etc. that hold the forgotten microwave toys. I suspect that if I move, they all get disposed of.

But I shouldn't forget bad tools any more than we should forget that collectivism is, and always has been, an excuse to rip us all off. Completely.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/02/19/cali fornia-gov-gavin-newsom-shifts-national-guard-to-f ighting-marijuana-black-market/

Cali Gov takes National Guard from border and sets them to ??? Tax evading pot farms. Together with a federal anti drug task force.

Seems like a ploy to get more federal tax dollars to prop up the federally illegal State run drug trade. You have to admire the chutzpah.

So, should Trump stop the federal anti drug program, which is focused on illegal drugs crossing the border the State government refused to stop?

So the Governor can use troops to assault entrepreneurs on the black, untaxed, market? ( that's one way to spin it ; ) )

I really want a Cheech & Chong joke here.

I think Trump needs to force CA to return the funds that were appropriated for the now-aborted high speed rail project.

Then, stick it right into the budget pot for the wall.

If I had fewer roots here at home...I'd head to the border with a pick and a shovel, and pitch in. Let's build that bitch. And if Cali keeps complaining, let's build it on the Arizona/Nevada side!

Trump already took what he was probably able to actually get, the rest is already spent.

And the Governor is going to sue. That should be an interesting series of arguments, that Trump cannot use money not earmarked for The Wall, but the Governor can use money earmarked for the Train to pay off his minions. ( or build death camps for plastic bag users... with California it's hard to tell )
